An engine oil leak may develop from the front crankshaft seal due to hardening of the rubber seal. There is a revised seal and sleeve available to correct this concern. Our technicians tell us that changing the oil every 3000 miles may help prolong seal life.

front crankshaft oil leak and I haven't corrected problem yet. any suggestions on how to replace?
Had several leaks under the hood. Just paid $400.00 for repairing one oil leak, and 2 new belts...only to discover I STILL have a leak underneath the engine (seal hardened). Quoted an $800.00 price. No repair made on that one.
